The College of the Arts (Cota) held its 14th graduation ceremony on 4 July at the National Theatre of Namibia (NTN).

A total of 72 students graduated with diplomas and certificates in television production, radio production, new media design, fashion design, visual art, performing arts and sound technology, after completing their three-year practical courses. Alumni from the college also shared their experiences at Cota.

Deputy higher education minister Dr Becky Ndjoze-Ojo shared her story of how she kept on studying until she was admitted into college, before eventually becoming a professor. She urged graduates to remain trustworthy.

“How people trust an idea; there is nothing tangible to hold onto and you are talking to this person and the person believes that your idea is credible and there nothing as encouraging as being trusted,” she said.

She added that the college should hold onto its uniqueness and niche.

“Don’t change yourself beyond the recognition of your founding mantra,” she said.

Ndjoze-Ojo stressed that the graduates should go out and make a difference in their communities.

Cota rector Angelika Schroeder congratulated the graduates.

She said they now had the pathways to express who they are and what is meaningful to them, as they prepare for a future that matters to them, and the world at large.
